different ways from different parts of the british isles so you had puritan massachusetts, anglican virginia, maryland founded by catholic family, quaker pennsylvania, dutch reform new york. the framers of the constitution understood this when they decreed there would be no religious test for federal office and the authors of the bill of rights understood when they said congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of religion which meant there would be no national religion but it also meant among other things that states could maintain their established churches, the commonwealth of massachusetts maintained an established church until 1843. americans have learned from early times not only to polk but even prosper as a nation with cultural diversity but that diversity has also led to severe strains and in one case to a seemingly irrepressible conflict. the first was the mass movement of the scotch irish from northern ireland and lowland scotland in a dozen years before the american revolution. they started coming over in some numbers in 1713 but there was a real rush, a real surge af
for the wrong reasons. mostly, the part of massachusetts where i'm fro didn't get any attention. when i was 12 years old, it got a lot, a lot of very positive reasons. it is because of this guy, paul tsongas. he had gone into local politics and in 1992, he was running for president. this is just when i was starting to get interested in politics. i didn't know much about the difference between the two parties. i knew it was really cool that someone that lived a few miles from our house was running for the white housing, the most important job in the world. every afternoon, the lowell sun would land on our doorstep. i would devour the information on the trail. i really wanted him to win. he won new hampshire and maryland and bill clinton overwhelmed him. there were a lot of reasons that he beat tsongas that year. one thing i knew, clinton had gotten rough and pushed the line. i was mad at bill clinton. i'll admit, i held a bit of a grudge. fast forward to 2007. i am writing a column i am not doing tv. i am a nobody. i am in thousands of dollars for debt. with hillary clinton setting out to run f
with a good time but when the government imposes these rules thatoesn't make sense in massachusetts one of the state's there are 55 types of businesses exempted completely so massachusetts thinks it is okay for people who worked at a gas station or a movie theater to not be with their family but somehow if you worked at target or wal-mart that you have to be with your family. gerri: special rules? >> not many gas stations are open and i would say a lot are close. maybe not the major highway but it is a choice but to datere was a workout in whole foods in chicago somebody was fired because they refused to keep the pizza hut open. there is a trend with the big box stores whitening the time they're open and basically those who don't want to be working would have to work the. >> hall paternalistic to say if you wereetting gas station your buck -- your boss to make the decision but in a wal-mart then the government makes us decision ? those who are lower wage workers should not be entitled to get time and half that a lot of employers offer or not during those hours? whole foods does offer ti
, massachusetts. theoretically, it is a great idea that people should talk politics all the time. the problem is that the nation is divided. they cannot have civil discourse. some programs on c- span, national security issues, people discussing this pointed out that our politicians are unable to discuss certain issues, so how to use -- how do you expect civilians to do so? host: have you have holidays ruined because of political discussions? caller: they can just add to the fuel. roy, from is massachusetts. page, on our facebook most of them saying no. 63 are saying thanksgiving is not time to talk politics. one of the ways you can talk to us about if thanksgiving is a time to talk about politics and how that goes for you, @cspanwj is our twitter address, facebook.com/cspan is our facebook page and journal@c- span.org is our e-mail. taylor, elkton, maryland, democrats line. taylor? caller: good morning. i think it is a great time. one of the things i am most thankful for is growing up with a republican mother and a democrat father. every meal is a political -- meal with is a discussions about

and the delay of the navy property. obviously the navy property massachusetts has been through idealize as we talked about the navy clean up. we have to change the schedule to move the project forward. most significantly you know, we really requested that the developer reorganize the phasing to enable al lettuce griffith to proceed. when we approved the project in 2010 we negotiated that the alice griffith revitalization would be linked up for the phase two market rate development. while it seemed smart tempting at the time it wouldn't allow the developer to start without doing alice griffith we didn't anticipate the display that actually prevented us from starting on alice awhile we wait for the navy he property. the new phasing is responding to the decouple of of the shipyard and the alice griffith now with the 349 could precede. the additional piece i wanted to mention i know the - this phasing schedule is something that must get reviewed by the california economical quality act we're working with the sequa to identify anything that my create additional economical impacts. generally, we do

economic growth. the state of massachusetts has generally been very well on this and basically massachusetts has imported high skilled, high education people. it's exported metal skill that is a relatively small state. you have got, what, six-point something million people in a little less than arizona. california has 38 million in texas has 25 million. so massachusetts is almost like a single nice metro area that's worked out pretty well. but you still have pretty high levels of any quality as well. so, you know, call on the people that say they want more inequality -- more income equality how come the places that you run have the highest income inequality. and they think the answer is you tax the middle income people out, you have high housing costs by environmental regulations and other things like california, for example but also, metro new york. no population increase in the last 40 years. it's the same. immigrants in and americans out. that's been the pattern. if you want to raise a family and you are not high income, phd educated, you have a decent job, what does the hou
